Crown Bioscience Opens Singapore Laboratory and Establishes Local Commercial Partner
Crown Bioscience, a global contract research organization (CRO) and JSR Life Sciences company, today announced the opening of a new site in Singapore to expand the company’s capacity to support both global and local biotech and pharma companies engaged in preclinical and translational oncology drug discovery and development.
The new facility will initially offer a broad portfolio of high-demand cell line-derived xenograft (CDX) and syngeneic models, alongside supporting analytical biomarker capabilities including flow cytometry and pathology services. The Company is also collaborating with the established biomedical community in Singapore to bring not only the foundational capabilities of Crown Bioscience’s preclinical services to Singapore but also novel technologies and services.
To support the growth goals for the Singapore site, and with a particular focus on the burgeoning local biotech industry, Crown Bioscience is pleased to announce it has entered into a distribution agreement with Biosys Corporation Pte Ltd., a specialized commercial partner with unique contacts within the Singaporean life sciences ecosystem.
Commenting on the opening of the new laboratory, Keefe Chng, PhD, executive director, and general manager of the Singapore facility, commented; “We are extremely excited to join the local biomedical community. Our core capabilities and experience will help the booming local biotech industry advance their preclinical and translational studies, while at the same time enable Crown Bioscience to bring unique high-end technologies to our global partners.”
Mr Ivan Fu, Director of Biosys Corporation, added: “We believe that Crown Bioscience’s new facility in Singapore will inject a new standard for quality and innovation in the local preclinical market. As a distributor of Crown Bioscience in Singapore, our aim is to accelerate our customers research to improve the future of cancer treatment.”
The investment in Singapore reflects a broader strategy to increase Crown Bioscience’s ability to support APAC-based clients with a local presence. In 2022 the Company announced a joint venture launch with sister company MBL in Japan, alongside facility expansions and upgrades to the Company’s Chinese presence. These investments coincide with the fast-growing biotechnology sector across the region, while recognizing the importance of local understanding and language in support of the company’s client base.
To mark the official site opening, a ribbon cutting event was held in February with executives from Crown Bioscience and Biosys Corporation in attendance.

REGiMMUNE Limited Licenses the Rights to Develop and Commercialize RGI-2001 To San Fu Biotech in Major Asian Countries1.4.2023 19:18:00 EEST | Press release
REGiMMUNE Limited (REGiMMUNE), a biotech company focused on creating innovative immunotherapies for immune disorders and cancer, and San Fu Biotech (SFB), a subsidiary of San Fu Chemical Co., Ltd. (4755.TW) have entered a licensing agreement to develop and commercialize RGI-2001 for the prophylaxis of acute Graft-versus-host disease (aGvHD) in major Asian countries. RGI-2001, with the novel mechanism to improve existing treatments, is a potentially first-in-class small molecule drug candidate targeted for preventing aGvHD, a life-threatening complication resulting from allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). GvHD is a systemic disorder that occurs when the graft's immune cells recognize the host as foreign and attack the recipient’s body cells or organs, and leads to skin rash, liver problems, abdominal pain or cramps, diarrhea, and increased risk for infections. Patients undergoing allogeneic HSCT have a high-risk of developing aGVHD associated with significant morb
